Aunt Vadge: transparent bubbly liquid coming out of my vagina

Hello Aunt Vadge!

I need help. Last week i got fingered by my boyfriend for the first time in my life. Since then, every time I am horny I have a transparent liquid with bubbles, similar to saliva. The liquid comes out in large quantities, and I do not know if it is normal or if I  should go to the doctor because of an infection?

Age: 19
Country: Mexico

Dear Bubbly,

This liquid is probably your normal, healthy vaginal secretions coming out of your Skene’s glands. These glands produce lubrication when you are turned on, to make sex or fingering slippery and delicious.

It’s good that it’s only coming out when you are horny, and it means you do not have an infection.

It’s not common to get an infection from fingering, unless your guy’s hands were dirty, so you’re probably just fine!

Write anytime.
